Michael Erickson's Honor Student Livestream 2012
Did you miss Michael Erickson’s Honor Student during the 2011-2012 Ingram New Works Festival? If so, you can view our archived Livestream video here.
A student in a college creative writing class writes a story about a student, much like himself, who brings a gun to class and begins shooting his classmates and instructor, much like the actual people in the class. Fearful that the story is a blueprint for a real shooting, the instructor alerts university officials and tries to have the student removed from her class. But the student fights back. He argues she is trying to censor his freedom of speech, and that she is biased against him. The instructor is soon on the defensive. Her career and her reputation are on the line. Has she overreacted? Or is there something deeper, more dangerous lurking here?
